Thought I would share a couple of RAKs I received this past week. I went nuts looking for my Fifth Avenue Floral set only to find it was sitting right on my desk. I pulled a couple of sets I wanted to make cards with and just haven't used it because I've needed to use other sets at the time.
I just addressed some RAKs to go out in tomorrow's mail. There are 3 challenges so I'm sending off one for each.
#1 - someone that shares the same birthday month
#2 - send to state that borders yours
#3 - send to the state you (or family) were born in

I found an hour and half on Wednesday when I could whip up a couple of cards and pop them in the mail. I'm not excited with what I sent out because I tend to like more layers and some embellishment but I justified the lack of embellishments with the fact I was mailing it off and time wasn't on my side. This is a time when less is more (I hope the thoughts expressed inside give it the more).
Stamps: All Year Cheer, A Rose is a Rose
CS: WW, Celery, Regal Rose
Ink: Regal Rose, Always Artichoke (markers: same)

I had a lot of fun with my daughter today. I took her for a pedicure, painting, to lunch and then to a mineral store where she bought a selenite crystal. Looking at the picture I took of her at lunch, I realized how she is leaving the little girl features behind and changing into a lovely, young lady.
I used Misti Cato's kit Garden District for this page. I have to say, I'm proud of myself for getting a page done the same day the pictures were taken.

Here is the funny thing though. We are moving back to Florida and the grass there is called St. Augustine. Where I'm from we call that crab grass and we try to kill it off - in Florida you want to grow it because it is your lawn.
